The Victrola Bugs Are Back

Post by 75X11 on Sun Aug 24, 2014 12:51 pm

I thought I had killed off all the yellowjackets last year, but they are back about a foot over from where I closed them up. I got some spectracide pro-fessional spray that has a 20 foot shooter. I sprayed their area and kicked the lawn edge. I hope they get walked all through it.

Yikes.

I dislike anything that has wings, a stinger and tries building housing in areas I work in and around....

Yeah, the sweat bees are nice little neighbors, but these things have displaced them.

I hear you, 75. Down here, I'm always knocking down either hornets or wasps nests from the under the eaves. Nasty little buggers. Are the yellow jackets building inside, or at least just pestering on the exterior?

They are under a pressure treated rail used for a lawn edge.

I have several paint spray cans with just a little bit of paint left, which I save. Then, when I'm out in my work shop and a bee, wasp or other unfriendly airborne pest comes around, it gets a quick shot of paint. The wings stop and the creature drops to the floor where it is stepped on!  Very Happy

What?!

And ruin a brand new paint job!!

I use starter/alternator cleaner myself. With the "straw" attached to the sprayer of the can it shoots pretty far and knocks 'em down before they get me!

Sneaky little pests. Down here, there stingers just make nests of mud, where the eave of the roof meets the exterior wall. Smash the nest, and the move away quickly.
